NHS funding

Below is a letter I just e-mailed to my MP. I find it disgusting that HM Government spends far more tax money on welfare and healthcare than defence at a time when we’re allegedly under grave threat from terrorism. Yes, I sent it through the leftist 38Degrees, but only for convenience’s sake.

Many believe the NHS needs more funding. Being of a more libertarian persuasion myself, however, I do not believe in additional taxation but of a decrease in wasteful spending instead. So I’m getting in touch to see if you could attend the debate on health and social care on Monday afternoon.

I know this is late notice, but it’s an important opportunity to start working on solutions for NHS and social care funding. Having recently received an overview of how much of my taxes is spent on welfare and healthcare, I would welcome advocacy for more balanced spending priorities. I do not believe it is right to spend disproportionately more on welfare than on defence at a time when the government claims we are under severe threat from terrorism.

I believe the government needs to be much more stringent in clamping down on NHS abuse by non-entitled persons such as tourists or high wealth residents. There also appears to be room for a reduction in coverage for non-essential procedures. NHS spending should be based on sound principles, not political expediency!

On the more Labour flavoured side, 38 Degrees have produced some research laying out 28 different policies that could help get the NHS the money it needs. They can be found here: https://link.38degrees.org.uk/HealthSocialCareFundingPolicy

If you aren’t able to attend the debate, please could you write to the Chancellor about how we can run the NHS more efficiently, or talk to your colleagues about the policies?

Thank you.

German intelligence service is as bad as the NSA (Comment is free, the Guardian)

German intelligence service is as bad as the NSA | Kai Biermann | Comment is free | theguardian.com.

A useful reminder from an otherwise despicable rag. “Your” government isn’t any better just because it claims to despise what the NSA is doing. They’re most likely just as guilty.

In the case of the BND / Germany this was easy to spot when the talk of “secure e-mail” came up. Only someone with no idea of how the Internet works could be so naive as to think that you can keep anything from the NSA / GCHQ just by repatriating your e-mail servers.

It’s a con, people. No government is seriously interested in granting you privacy, especially not if they claim the opposite.

Pessimistic? Maybe, but I doubt it.

Get government out of marriage (and OTM unions)!

So now that the US Supreme Court has opened the flood gates to any kind of union having to be recognized, I think it’s time government got out of the marriage and Other Than Marriage union business altogether. If they’re so hellbent on destroying marriage, they should welcome the logical step and quit meddling entirely.

In the end it’s all about money and privilege, so let’s remove those incentives and institute the most crude but also most fair to any pervert and FUBAR’d moron: Relationships with benefits registers, supported by government. Kind of like LLCs, but usually with fewer people involved. And just like there are LLCs for all sorts of services and purposes, the RLLCs would also be for different services and purposes.

If it’s really about “discrimination”, “equality” and all that other marxist rubbish, let’s no longer suppress polygamists, zoophiles, pedophiles and technophiles. Who are you to forbid them to “marry” as many people, animals or things as they want?

And if you, dear “tolerant people”, think pedophilia and zoophilia is wrong, for one who are you to judge, and for another, welcome to my world, I can’t condone repulsive behavior either.

EDIT: What I’m saying is: Let’s quit arguing and end this silly conflict! Liberalism is a mental disorder, so just like there’s no telling a paranoid person they’re not under constant threat, there’s no point in trying to explain to those morons what marriage is. This debate is a distraction from far more important things! There’s a man behind the curtain and he doesn’t like you one bit!

Could the days of the British “pint” be numbered? – Yahoo! News.

From the idiots who brought you the half pack (of cigs) now comes this doozie. Unfortunately many people will miss the fact that they’re demanding ever larger sums of money from you, and as always, do so out of sheer greed.

To quote whoever Rep. Paul quoted: Don’t steal. The government hates competition.

Americans are good misspellers (Washington Times)

Washington Times – Americans are good misspellers

Typical, ignore the problem and impose a “solution.” If many adults can’t spell properly, it means the educational system has failed, not that “it’s too hard.”

This is the same sort of BS pandering to immigrants Germany and Austria did some years back when they rewrote the grammatical rules governing the use of the German language, except that here in America many citizens are dumber than fresh off the boat immigrants.

But of course we can’t just reform the educational system. If Congress did that people might eventually be smart enough to realize that they’ve been conned and that DC isn’t home to our government anymore, that it’s now become “our” government. The elites will do anything to stay in power.

A very well written article on the current “crisis.” On a side note, this whole mess started before Senator McCain even assumed office.

They sure do, especially liberals. And stick them in US history as well because they have entirely forgotten how our government is supposed to work.

Charlton Heston, R.I.P.

According to FNC, Charlton Heston has passed away.

No law abiding citizen should relinquish his gun voluntarily, ever! Our right to bear arms was acknowledged by the founding fathers and enshrined in our constitution. I trust myself more than the state, so in times of need I must defend myself because the state will fail all too easily.
